National Leadership Forum

2016 Theme:
Leaders At Every Level – The Secrets of Developing a Culture of Leadership

Most universities, schools, organizations and companies need more and better leaders. They are trying to reach their strategic goals, yet are stunted because they don’t have enough quality leaders—people who know how to bring out the best in staff and students. They fail because they have not created an ongoing process that continually identifies, equips and launches new leaders. The surest way to create a leadership pipeline is to develop a culture of leadership throughout your campus or organization. In short, we must build leaders at every level.

During the 2016 National Leadership Forum, we offer speakers who will guide you in cultivating a process of continual leadership development. If you are a senior leader in your school or organization, or are the “CEO” of an individual classroom, this year’s Forum has something for you. We welcome you and your team to join us.

The 2016 NLF will help you:

  • Identify specific action steps to foster a leadership culture.
  • Learn how to spot potential leaders early in your staff, faculty or students.
  • Practice four principles that foster leader development in people.
  • Develop a “growth mindset” instead of a “fixed mindset” in staff.
  • Expand your network of fellow colleagues who care about the emerging generation.
  • Cultivate healthy leaders at every level of your school or organization.
